welcome Hot Bikini

Dear Bridgette:

Don’t get discouraged! Even though you’re too young to attend FIDM, or launch your career in the Fashion Industry, there’s a lot you can do to prepare for your future that will help you a lot in the coming years. For instance:

  • Read fashion history books. If you need help, go to the public library and ask the librarian for help in finding what you’re looking for
  • Read fashion magazines
  • Find picture books on different Fashion Designers
  • Rent old movies to study what people were wearing in other decades
  • Window shop often, to learn the new styles and watch fashion change season by season, year by year
  • Shop in thrift stores, used clothing stores, and flea markets to see fashions from the past (‘40s and ‘50s to the ‘80s and ‘90s)
  • Visit museums that are having clothing exhibits
  • Get a job in a clothing store and begin learning the Fashion Industry from the ground up

Starting your fashion research now will pay off. If you do any of these things over the next few years, you will definitely reap the benefits later!

From one fashion fanatic to another,
